When I think about worship, I usually think about music. Music that reaches into my soul and my spirit and brings me to my knees. It's a time spent praising God and feeling like he is giving me a small glimpse into the love He has for me.
But what does it mean to Him? In service the last few weeks, I have been hearing some amazing things. Like, God likes it when I like to worship Him. It's not meant to be a "duty", it is meant to be a "delight".
Also, worship costs. Back in the Old Testament, people had to spend time and effort to prepare their worship offering. There was a whole list of things that were required, in order for the offering to be acceptable.So what am I bringing to God that truly shows my effort and my love for Him? I know that I love Him, and that I want to spend time in His presence, but does that always mean grinding flour and picking out the perfect lamb?
Yes...it does...but in my own way. My creativity is God given, and I believe that God likes it when I use what He has given me, to show my love. When I spend hours working in my journal, painting, gluing, cutting, lettering, a page that shows my prayers, my praises, and my worship, I believe this honors God
. There is nothing I am enjoying more these days than blasting the worship music, sitting down at my desk, and worshipping my Lord.
